on Jan. 2, 2014 :
Did I enjoy this book: I … I don’t know what to say. I enjoyed it in much the same way I enjoyed the Carrie Underwood version of The Sound of Music — that is to say, I couldn’t stop reading (or watching), but I’m not entirely sure it was for the right reasons. I know I promised to suspend my disbelief when I signed up for this gig, but I had no idea I’d be agreeing to travel via “cyber time” back to an alternate past wherein Kennedy DOESN’T get shot and the heroine accidentally makes out with Lee Harvey Oswald.
I blame myself entirely. I didn’t know how attached I was to the actual history of my country. I didn’t even think I LIKED history. I didn’t know how I felt about what I can best describe as a Quasi-Historical Assassination Conspiracy Fanfiction novel until I was well past the point of no return.
TIL: happy endings aren’t my bag, baby.
Would I recommend it: Yeah (I bet you weren’t expecting that). It’s crazy-go-nuts, but if you’re even the least bit uncertain about how you stand on time travel (or President Kennedy, or soap opera actresses, or special effects guys who secretly build time machines in their back rooms), then you absolutely need to read this book. Go on, give it a whirl. I cyber-dare you.
Will I read it again: Right after I re-watch Vampire Bill pretend to be Captain VonTrapp.
